Hope Transforms


Eunice Nthambi lives in Mabatini with both parents and her six siblings. Her parents do casual jobs to provide for their family. She joined MOHI’s Mabatini school seven years ago in pre-primary 1 when she was four years old. 

Eunice is a good dancer and poet and she is usually ready to entertain our visitors whenever they visit our school. One of her eyes had a deformity since birth. This sometimes makes her shy around her friends and has affected her academic performance because she strains a lot to see. During one of the visitor presentations, Pastor Wallace Kamau noted her challenge and recommended her for a medical checkup at the Kikuyu Eye Hospital. The family’s social worker talked with both parents to ensure that the assessment was done. The hospital recommended to have surgery urgently because the child was almost 12 years old, the age after which it is not recommended for the surgery.
 
MOHI partnered with a local agency to facilitate the medical assessment at Kikuyu Eye Hospital. The local agency volunteered to pay all the bills so that the Eunice could get the necessary surgery. Eunice was admitted and had a successful surgery. Now she has gained sight in the eye which had a visual challenge.
 
Eunice is just one example among the many other students who have benefited from mentorship, partnership, guidance, talent training, medical treatment and assistance which parents could not have provided. She has changed, she’s motivated and will be able to do better this year.

As a school we wish to thank God and appreciate all the staff and partners involved in the whole process of her medical checkups, surgery, follow-ups, support and guidance given to Eunice to regain her sight.
